About this book
Originally published under the title History of Political Thought, this innovative text provides a broad-ranging thematic introduction to the Western tradition of political thought. It reviews the contributions of a wide range of theorists to the key themes of the ends of politics, the location, exercise and justification for challenging or obeying political authority. The second edition has been revised and updated throughout with more extended coverage of key thinkers and updated coverage of key contemporary debates.
